Probably. I haven't seen it in some time (like never). Mine is probably crumpled in a corner somewhere.

Spent last night (this morning) playing with the software on my laptop. Made some preliminary adjustments to the fuel and timing maps, reset the rpm a bit higher (too much :) ) and adjusted my cold start enrichment.

Spent most of the day cleaning the garage and setting aside scrap metal for pickup.

Car doesn't like the cold so I wait for a new Cylinder Head Temp Sensor Sub Harness to get here so it will start.

Little more cleaning tomorrow.

On that note,

If anyone needs extra Z31 stuff check out the FS Section.

This is starting to sound like it will be ready for spring.

Can we expect you to drive this to the Club meetings and events?

Yea prob. Just a huge lack of funding.

The repairs, nuts and bolts are adding up and I don't have positive income yet.

Sheewwwww ~ I'd probably pay just to see the finished product. What's the chance of you giving us a 'show and tell' class about your rebuild (and any lessons learned) at one of our first 2010 meetings?

Speaking in front of large crowds doesn't freak you out, does it? :shock:

Guy from the Z31 forum just sent me a bunch of relays. If I get a nice sunny day I may try to figure out the fuel pump issue and rewire it for full power.

Otherwise I need to fab some brackets for my special project and figure out how I'm going to pay for a radiator.

Wanna talk about your "special project" yet, or are you gonna keep us all in suspenders?

You'll get pics soon enough.

I need to rent a welder and associated items. I don't have the cash for it until I find employment.

It should be relatively epic, compared to other Z31s.

Well, you've had a lot of time to work on it, and I think I've figured out what you're doing........

Got the Z to idle for a few minutes. :)

Needs some tweaking and some replacement sensors. :(

Plugged in my laptop today to get some readings.

My fuel map was crazy messed up. Super rich, around 9.8:1.

Don't know how that happened, but fixed it and the car idled for a bit. idle was low but I drained the battery before I could adjust it.

Another small step.

Got a wierd TPS code I need to look into.
